DON'T DO AS WE DO, DO AS WE SAY

All our
Parliament is these days is a very large receptacle for hot air, literally.

It seems that an audit has produced shaming results regarding Parliament's and more importantly the representatives (and I use that word loosely) of the people's (MPs) regard to the environment and "doing their bit".

"The only green thing about Parliament is the mould growing on unfulfilled promises," said Alan Simpson, Labour MP for Nottingham South. "Nothing much seems to have been done to make Parliament greener - such as installing low-energy light bulbs."

Lights are left blazing; computers and radiators remain on, and free underground parking and petrol subsidies encourage MPs to drive. Official figures show that the Houses of Parliament have failed to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and are producing 2,000 tons of waste a year.

Petrol Subsidies!! I'm speechless! (for once)

THE BAD:

John Prescott
Deputy Prime Minister. "Two Jags" once drove a few yards on a windy day to preserve his wife's immaculately coiffed hair.


Kenneth Clarke
Tory leadership candidate. He may be a keen birdwatcher, but is also deputy chairman of British American Tobacco.


John Redwood
Tory MP for Wokingham. Said people "ignore the fact that the Earth has lived through hotter times".

I suggest that we "wire" the London Eye up to a generator outside Parliament and have the hypocrites running like hampsters within it to produce green power for the seat of our esteemed (coff) Government. That'll make em think twice. It should improve the falling tourism figures as well!
